Please meet Quinn! Quinn is beautiful Silver Tabby who has been at Green Hills Animal Shelter for almost 2 years. Quinn was a young adult when she arrived at the shelter as a stray, and she has grown into a gorgeous adult kitty while waiting for her Forever Home. Shortly after arriving at GHAS, Quinn tested positive for FeLV, but you’d never know by meeting her — she is healthy, happy, and loving, and she is sure to steal your heart!
Because Quinn has FeLV, she gets to live in KittyWood, which is a special area in the shelter for cats who are FIV and/or FeLV positive. KittyWood was constructed because special needs cats often take longer to find their Forever Homes, so we wanted to provide the special needs kitties at GHAS with a special place to play and socialize while they wait to be adopted. The open environment of KittyWood also helps to keep stress levels low, which in turn helps to keep its residents healthy and happy. As a result, Quinn and the other cats that live in KittyWood are very socialized and love humans, as well as other cats.
Quinn herself is very friendly and affectionate and always looking for attention; the attributes of the perfect lap cat! She is always ready to be petted and, without fail, Quinn loves everyone she meets.
Quinn’s perfect home would be an indoor only home where she could be a lap kitty and receive lots of attention and love. She would love to get to spend time lounging in sunbeams and watching the birdies through the windows, a luxury she doesn’t have at the shelter. She would be a wonderful pet for someone who wants a special companion to fill their days with love. Because Quinn is FeLV positive, she must be an indoor only kitty. Also, because FeLV is transmittable to other cats, Quinn will need to be an only cat or live in a household where the other kitties are vaccinated against FeLV. (Please note that FeLV only affects cats, and cannot be transmitted to humans, dogs, or other non-cat animals.)
Quinn has been spayed, de-wormed, FIV/FeLV tested, and is up to date on all her vaccinations, including rabies. She is a very special kitty who has waited so long for a home of her own – could she share her heart and home with you?
(FeLV, which is short for Feline Leukemia Virus, is a disease that suppresses a cat’s immune system, making the cat less able to defend itself against infections or viruses that would not normally cause a problem in healthy cats. FeLV can be passed from one cat to another through saliva, blood, and to some extent, urine and feces, with mutual grooming or fighting being the most common ways for the infection to spread. FeLV is specific to the cat family, and does not affect other species of animals or people. )
